George Norcross, a Democratic power broker and businessman, was removed from a Philadelphia Eagles game for displaying an American-Israeli flag in violation of stadium policy.
Norcross claimed he was forcibly removed and is considering legal action, arguing that the flag was removed despite the Eagles/NFL publicly supporting Israel.
“Yesterday, I was forcibly removed and assaulted by the non-police security staff of Lincoln Financial Field and the Eagles/NFL for refusing to remove a 3′ x5′ American and Israeli flag I’d hung off the box I was sitting in,” he stated.

So it’s acceptable to display an LGBTQ or BLM flag but not an American/Israeli flag at an Eagles game?

“As a longtime passionate fan and season ticket holder, I have watched the Eagles/NFL make clear and strong statements on numerous important civil justice issues and ethnic and world conflicts, including supporting the people of Ukraine, so as a strong supporter of Israel – a country which was viciously attacked by the terrorist group Hamas less than a month ago – I thought it was an important statement to make.”
“It remains unclear why the Eagles/NFL believe that the US-Israeli flag should be deemed ‘obscene or indecent’ or otherwise inappropriate — which is what I was cited for — and should therefore be ripped down despite both issuing public statements strongly supporting Israel following the October 7th attacks.” (Trending: Federal Court Rules Against Gun Owners)
He added, “But as I consider whether to file suit against the Philadelphia Eagles, the NFL and the security company which yanked me out of the box and paraded me in front of thousands of fans, I urge other supporters of Israel to make their feelings known to the team and the NFL just as they have to universities like Penn and Harvard.”
The Eagles and the stadium did not immediately respond to the incident.
“The Eagles leadership and the NFL obviously like to practice their preferred speech, whatever they deem is appropriate instead of free speech. I didn’t check my free speech rights at the door.” George Norcross on being removed from the Eagles game. |@dagenmcdowell @SeanDuffyWI pic.twitter.com/URNrTcTnxH
